I just had an ah-ha moment. Having trouble tattooing my dark eared goats. So I bought some light green ink and thought all would be well.
I re-tattooed a black doe 3 weeks ago for a show and decided to check and see how the tattoo was looking. Well the right side I did with my gray numerals and the left with my white numerals. A few years ago I bought the white set because I was missing a few letters.
Well there was no color on the right side, just the scar. The left side retained the color. I noticed that my white numerals have thicker needles, thus putting more ink in the ear.
Maybe too late to put in your book but I wish I knew that before!!
Hi Deborah - our kids are all due in April. Each of our does came in heat one week apart so that will be an interesting month. We were lucky - every Saturday in November we visisted a differant local farm where we had lined up a stud so they all will have differant sires. It just so happens that all of the sires were white (what are those odds) so all of the colors may be a surprise.
Sorry Deborah, haven't been checking my email lately. Just found the email about the book quote. Of course, I would't mind dear. In fact, I am very honored. Just remember, I am no grammar whiz, just a redneck, so make sure it's all RIGHT ok! Any time!
I have been getting endless amount of emails from this forum, everytime someone posts I get an email. I enjoy seeing who is posting and all but it is just blowing up my email, how do I get this to stop?
Deborah, just wanted to let you know that I have contacted a few breeders about the possibility of a buckling purchase. I am waiting to see what hits the ground in January and I will go from there and see if there's anything that will work for me. So let me know what you get if they are not spoken for already. Thanks, Amy
I have been so busy since launched my business and didn't notice that I hadn't received any emails from the site. I had logged on to update my information and update my user name etc. I answered some entries and saw them in my email later, but I remember being able to view every entry on the forum. I really miss seeing everything.
Has the forum changed or did I click something to stop the emails? Even if I don't post, I still need to read all the comments and entries.

Thanks Deb. We have even looked into a small commercial type of meat grinder, but oh they are so pricey and can't justify using one for the amount of meat we may want to grind. So glad to hear you are happy with the KitchenAid attachment. I think I know what I might ask for at Christmas time. :)
Deb, was reading your blog about your turkeys. Noticed in the picture you have KitchenAid meat grinder attachment. How do you like it? We have been pondering a meat grinder for sometime now. We have a KitchenAid also. Any pros or cons to using this attachment?
